Graeagle Meadows men
Outstanding course conditions and fantastic weather continue to make golf at Graeagle Meadows something special. Weekly Wednesday and Friday play days continue to offer something for everyone, Fridays being low net plus skins, and Wednesdays a team game of some sort.
On Friday, July 19, we had 13 sign up, everyone playing from the combo tees. First place, with a low net 66, was taken by Andy Knudsen. Mike Gibson came in second at 67, while four players tied for third place at 68. Those included Jack Gilbert, John Scott, Bob Davies, and Mark Yuill. There were four skins awarded, two for Jack Gilbert and one each to Jim Reynolds and John Scott.
On Wednesday, July 24, 18 GMGA members, plus two guests, brought the field to a total of 20. The game was four-man teams playing 3-2-1, a wicked variation of the more common 1-2-3. Simply put, three best scores were to be taken on the first hole, two scores on the second hole, and one best score on the third hole, then repeated on through the course. It should bring a smile on the face from those familiar with the handicapping of holes at Graeagle Meadows, the three score holes being some of the more difficult on the course. Taking first place with a combined score of 117 was the team of Dan Anderson, Bert Bellows, Dennis Flynn, and Norm Nichols. In second place, with a score of 120, was the team of Jim Reynolds, John Scott, Jack Gilbert, and John Grasso. By the way, Jim Reynolds shot a net 63 with a gross 76, which included three sandy birdies, one of his best rounds of the year. Congratulations, Jim!
Final results and the wrap-up of our 2019 Match Play competition were announced to our membership. After weeks of competition, the 2019 Match Play Champion is Dave MacDonald. Dave played his see-saw championship match against Jim Oster having to take it down to the last hole to win the match. Meanwhile, Gene Carr and John Sciborski battled in a consolation match. Throughout the competition, Gene and John were never one stroke apart, finally tied at the 17th hole. On the final hole however, Gene left no doubt with a birdie while John stumbled with a bogie. Congratulations to both Dave and Gene, our 2019 match play champions.
